, chris. tonight's lead, they are getting dirty. five days to go, president obama's campaigning in three states today. meanwhile, republicans are going ugly. mitt romney is trying everything he can to shake up the race. that is the real story of what is going on in the campaign now. romney's forces are responding to new polls showing president obama leading in swing states. up by six in iowa, up by five in ohio, and ahead in other key states, including new hampshire, be virginia, florida, wisconsin, colorado, and nevada. and today, a major endorsement coming from new york city's independent mayor michael bloomberg. no question, this is a close race but today in wisconsin the president went after one of the key points in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the gove
until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've
were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. then out west to springfield, ohio. then he headed north to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here is a look at another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an electio
it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the
, he says, advertising now in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there an
at the new yorker magazine. they just endorsed barack obama and all the talk about the des moines register. people are overlooking the fact he bagged "the new york times" and the new yorker. hurricane sandy caused president obama and mitt romney to cancel events in virginia. this is important because with only nine days left until election day, it comes down to math and geography, the votes and the map. the map shrunk to seven swing states, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin and ohio are all in play this cycle. president obama can count on 243 electoral votes that will go blue and romney can count on 106. with each having to get to 270 to win. the simple take away is the president's path to victory is significantly easier. polls show barack obama consistently ahead in iowa and wisconsin. if he holds on there, he won both last time, he just needs to win florida, ohio or virginia. he's behind in florida and a dead heat in virginia. he seems to be ahead in ohio. it's why the candidates are spending so much time in that state. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a r
of governor romney, president obama will probably say, i haven't gotten his official response, he will probably say the economy is expanding. it is going in the right direction. we need more time for number of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state he is making that in. it will be very interesting to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, anothe
. >> all that plus the image emblematic of what barack obama wanted from his presidency. it took four years and an act of god to get it. it's thursday and you're in "the cycle." >>> it's another day of slow progress as nearly two dozen states pick up the pieces from sandy. the death toll now stands at more than 80. also rising is the costs. now estimated at north of $60 billion. that's not hard to consider when you look at the incredible damage especially along the new jersey coastline. homes ripped off their foundations. many have simply vanished. carried in full right out to sea. those amazing images continue to pour in. hard to watch and simply hard to believe. nbc's michelle franzen begins our coverage this hour. she's back for us in toms river. michelle is the only reporter to make it into the neighboring community of seaside heights. so tell us, michelle, what you saw there. >> reporter: well, we were there yesterday and also early this morning. and the devastation there is just sort of unbelievable. it plays tricks your eyes when you look at the boardwalk, the place you're used to se

include those self-employed. when obama came in we were at negative 800,000 a month. that's a positive swing of a million. that means we're closer to 3% gdp growth. when obama came in it was negative 9 cl%. that's a 12-point swing. the question of whether or not this economy has turned the corner is no longer a question. it's turned the corner thanks mostly to the work of president obama. >> professor, romney today tried to provide a vision of what he'd like to do as president. let's take a listen to mr. romney. >> i know that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation that's unrelated to economic growth. gee said he won't spend his time complain being his predecessor. in fact, he'll take credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different st
is over before there is either an obama administration for a second time or a new mitt romney administration. and we'll have a very brief period for a very polarized congress to try to come up with some sort of a solution to the fiscal cliff. now i think both sides want it to happen, however, there is, there has been some stubbornness on the part of both sides on some very key issues and the fiscal cliff would represent a departure in the gdp. we could actually end up seeing gdp growth, closer to zero and that's going to show up in jobs numbers. jenna: that is good context for us because whoever wins the election next week on tuesday that same congress is returning and that same congress will have to deal with some very big problems we have ahead for us in the country over next couple months. great to see you again. >> thanks very much for having me. jon: well, recovery from superstorm sandy has an additional component now. the ongoing search for gasoline in new york and new jersey. patience also in short supply across that region as drivers who actually can find a gas station
